I got my Coachella tickets in yesterday's pre-sale (thanks for the free subscription to SPIN by the way! Awesome!) and received my email with the code to join the Online community, which was as follows:

COACHELLA ONLINE COMMUNITY
The Coachella Community is made up solely of Coachella festival goers. See where people are coming from, what bands they want to see and what past Coachella's they have attended & much more! You get one code for you and one for each friend you purchased a ticket for.

The phrase "past Coachella's" should not have an apostrophe in it!!!! Coachellas is the plural of Coachella! It is not possessive!!!!! Arrrrrggggggghhhhh!!!! I hate this! I am boycotting the community because of this!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also, they ended the sentence with a preposition.

It's a proper noun, so the apostrophe is acceptable. Like saying, "there are a lot of Jeff's on this board." Also, it clarifies, like "How many 8's do you have in your hand?"

It's damn near genius compared to some of the posts we get on here.

There's nothing wrong with ending a sentence with a preposition, tesster. It's archaic, stuffy grammar school nonsense to think otherwise.

Your overly casual attitude towards proper grammar is something up with which I will not put.

I can't even read the Line-up section anymore because of depechemodekraftwerk's truly deplorable grammar. If I see one more misplaced apostrophe I'm going to cry for the state of education in this country.
